3:20 am
tonight with the budget mrimgsz. >> this is part of the budget development process so the actual what gets implemented this year and that's my understanding that the ongoing expenditures for this coming year are stilt being decided as part of the budget process. >> i want to mash we decade fund to implement it with integrity so if things are passed and we don't we know there is a budget prelims but we don't have an inner budget i want to mention that on the record. >> you know what it - >> commissioner norton and commissioner wynns. >> i need to correct myself no recommendation from the budget committee because we this is part ever budget development
3:21 am
process so we did not consider this as an action item even though it was agendize we heard it as an informative action. >> commissioner wynns. >> i have two questions i realize it is a big job i thank members of the committee and the staff for all the work one of the things actually 3 things one of the things we talked about at the rules committee the process by which we'll have the committee do regular reviews we want to make sure as i said at the committee i'll say is it again previous to this policy in our old wing proposal policy one the components an annual recommendation from the name of the committee changed during that time about the updates to the policy and there were
3:22 am
recommendations about the changes that would be made and most of those were not brought to the board so some o most of the changes never happened i'm hoping the committee will work a little bit more on bring to us in the future a way to as part of monitoring to say we think we need provisions or update and not wait until we adapt another wing policy that's the first thing the second thing about the budget i'm requesting the budget recommendation that are played to the board actually have a description and component that says this is how much of the new wing policy especially the staffing we recommend we implement now so we know when we do the budget how much money and what we're going to get faster the policy and the last thing i have a part write don't think i
3:23 am
paid attention to about the what happens to the provision of feeding every hungry child i want an just want not now but soon as we go along and implement many policy if we see changes at my hope what i think i know has been happen most the provisions are not relevant anymore because the way the process we've used for collecting meal applications or certifying kids has been way million dollars ahead of what it was that was one of our main concerns schools with low levels of filing applications and we want to make sure which was the main gift no child was left without a regular meal and the
3:24 am
point of sale system sha should completely change the landscape but we've not talked that specific i don't want to delay this i hope we'll vote for it i hope those are things we'll bring back soon so the board can have confidence we are continuing our commitment to those principles which have up to now been embedded in those 3 things mentioned at the bottom as being super seated. >> commissioner walton. >> again, i want to thank the necessary committee for your work and deprived to be on the
3:25 am
board when we pass this board and thank you for the opportunity for the standards to get the food on a daily basis and i saw gooiven sitting in the back i guess its work for them i ask for bigger cups so i don't have to take more trips to get water. >> superintendent. >> so i'd like to thank the committee? a long and fruitful engagement around the cutting-edge for the activity for students here inform san francisco i want to point to the implementation and monitoring section of the policy which i think is the most xhfsz it is a change no mindset to ask for all deputies to understand and
3:26 am
digester no pun intended this policy and understand the policy it requires us to be our own policing agent, if you will it requires us to not allow food and drink in our schools and activities that don't exploratorium to the policy it requires us to not expedite with the innovation services this is a huge, huge issue as a principle i remember as a teacher my fundraiser i couldn't expedite with the innovation but the benefit of time you realize when you have a policy if you carve out many, many expectations you have no policy so closing the loopholes is power and requires adjustment and i'm going to ask my colleagues in the classroom and departments quite frankly including us sitting here how we eat and what we do for our
3:27 am
students in a public matter not the least of which i want to thank revolution foods for providing this evening with actual cuisine we had fire chicken it was wonderful and that was directly recommended to student input going again i want to add may thanks to everyone to participated on a personal note i'll say you cannot talk about social cadet for all of our students paralleling our students of color with you don't pay attention to what they're eating and providing opportunities for the type 2 diabetes and heart
3:28 am
disease are chronic in our communities of color i know i lost how parents to those kinds of diseases we have the ability to say this will not happen to our students in san francisco remember this is social justice (clapping) so i'd like to make a few points about awhile i'll be supporting tonight policy we have a did you mention about this in the rules committee but number one it provide for breakfast in class for all the students to make sure our students get a healthy breakfast, and, secondly, it provides for drinking water to all students our hetch hetchy water to all students throughout the day and thirdly it requires announced healthy food and we heard from our ucsf partners about sugar addiction and the
3:29 am
amount of sugar our kids are consume it is a far-reaching policy in terms of what is allowed. >> birthday parties we really want to encourage fruits and vegetables and we want the kids to get a nutritious meal and phase out of chocolate milk because of the value of that and number 4 it does provide for restrictions as foods for fundraiser at the school site and event it is very, very important brought up u out in the rules committee our educators will not be allowed to withholding recess as a way to deal with behavorial issues we're a roar active practice this is typically those kids that noted the physical activity
3:30 am
that may currently be having their recess withheld those are major shifts but shows a enlightened policy and hope to ask for everybody cooperation in making sure it get implemented so i believe first we have a vote on the amendment that commissioner wynns moved and commissioner norton seconded. >> if we need a vote open the amendments for that the staff recommendations the staff concurred. >> i see i'll give it a staff recommendations then we will vote open the amendment and it will why not vote on the policy as amended roll call. >> simulating mr. chin
